Shakayla Denson did not attend this latest hearing. But Hillsborough Circuit Judge Kimberly Fernandez appointed two doctors to evaluate Denson's mental capacity.
A competancy hearing is set for October 22nd.
Denson is charged with murdering her four-year-old daughter Je'Hyrah Daniels. Investigators say, according to witnesses, Denson waded into the Hillsborough River near the Columbus Drive, carrying a screaming child into the middle of the river, then letting go of the child and walking out. Je'Hyrah's body was found by the Tampa police dive team a short time later.
